this guy was confused about everything, constantly played the victim role and joined every group he came across (no pun intended) whether it was communists, indians, hippies...and on and on.
so he was gay...who cares. they always need a headline to feel important. plenty of people dont care and some celebrate it but thats never enough. everyone MUST like everything gay people do or stand for and if you dont you get labeled something that ends with -ist or -phobe.
those fighting for tolerance are always the most intolerant.

I loved this guy! It really is super to hear those who came before us, discuss what it was like to be gay. I just wish this had been longer!! And kudos to the filmmaker for recording this for posterity.

Ain't History Grand?!?!?!
It’s so terrific to hear older gay men discuss life well before Stonewall. Congratulations to the folks who collected this oral history. Also, it’s so sad to read the bigoted remarks left by other viewers. So many people think its fine to express unbridled bigotry against gay men and lesbians. They are the same sort who expressed ignorant bigotry against African Americans in the past.

We owe it all to Calvin Klen
Mr. Hay talks about how Oral was better then Oral, just because the UNDERWEAR WAS SO CUMBERSOME BACK THEN. Unbuttoning the BVDS was such a chore! (clucks tongue)

Question of Content
I'm uncertain as to exactly what this film is all about.
First off, even school-age children are most certainly aware, reproduction can't arise from the sole act of having someone's nuts in your mouth.
Furthermore, I don't find the inappropriate use
of lederhosen amusing in the least, and neither should you.
Finally, a stark question posed in the film remains unanswered: Who was the mystery composer of the film's upbeat title song: "Cork me up the reamer, Milfred!" ?
